Rodman criticizes Chicago
CHICAGO (AP) — Dennis Rodman isn’t happy with his contract he’s not crazy about Chicago’s weather and he’s not impressed with being the teammate of Scottie Pippen and Michael Jordan.
Those were his first comments, made in a radio interview moments after he was traded to the Bulls from the San Antonio Spurs earlier this week.
Is this the outrageous Rodman, a man who does what he wants and speaks his mind, surfacing so soon? Or is it part of an act to get attention?
“Chicago is cold as hell, lf I decide to go there, it’s not because of Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen or anything like that. That don’t mean nothing. I don’t bow down to any man, whoever they are or what stature they have," Rodman said in an interview with XTRA-AM
Under the new collective bargaining agreement, Rodman could only get a 20 percent raise on a contract extension of hts current $2.5 million salary.

Her*! -ZaHung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL Canyon Collarette players Corby Collins, Tiffany Waldnar, Cheryl Dunn and Lssll Hal mar quastlon a call during the final minutes of Tuesday night’s match with New Braunfels. The Cougarattes took only (the'second lost of the season In 22 games. The outcome put New Braunfels, Canyon and Smithson Valley Into a three-way tie In the district standings.
Herald-Zeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL New Braunfels outside hitter Kristi Linesman was a force up front Tuesday night at Unicorn gym. The senior had six kills and six blocks as the Unicorns defeated Canyon, 15-2,15-7.
New Braunfels sent a message with their latest victory. It stated that when the Unicorns are on their game, they can heat any team in the region.
That was the case Tuesday night before a packed house at Unicom Gym where New Braunfels dismantled Canyon in two games 15-2,15-7.
The win, combined with Smithson Valley’s 15-1, 15-3 defeat of Lockhart, throws the District 28-4A race into a three-way tie. The Unicorns, Rangers and Cigarettes each stand at 3-1. Hays (2-2) topped Bastrop 1-3 to remain one game behind in second place.
For new head coach Phyllis Fowler, the win was one to savor, if only briefly before the Unicorns begin preparing for a showdown with the Rangers on Friday.
The latest match was Fowler’s first-ever district meeting against the rival Cougarcttes. Before the game she said the Unicorns would have to play their best volleyball of the season to win. And they did.
“They just came together tonight,” Fowler said. “Canyon brought out the hest in us. Good teams like Canyon do that.”
Canyon entered the game as the No. I Class 4A team in the region and was riding a 14-game winning streak. Not since the Fraulein Tournament in late August had the Cougarettes lost a game. The string included a win over New Braunfels three weeks ago in the McNeil Tournament.
None of that seemed to matter to the Unicorns this time around. From the outset, they took -command with a 3-1 lead and never looked back.
Outside hitter Kristi Lindeman, who used

‘The first time we played them we weren’t up for it,” Lindeman said. “It was different this time. We had so much support tonight with so many people here. It gave us total confidence that we could do it.”
With 13 consecutive points, the Unicorns stole the first game in less than 20 minutes. Brandi Chapman served out the game at 13-2.
The Unicorns then raced out to a 4-0 lead before Canyon senior setter Kim Brunette, Elizabeth Weisman, Shannon Young and Lesa Porter got on track and locked the game at 7-7.
That’s when middle blocker Jill Evans, who had five aces, took over at serve and rattled off five straight points to put New Braunfels in front 12-7. It was all the home team from that point.
Afterwards, Canyon coach Donna Boehle said her team lacked enthusiasm, but she gave credit to New Braunfels.
“Our intensity wasn’t as focused as it needed to be,” Boehle said. "We’re a better team than tonight, but that’s taking nothing at all away from New Braunfels. They played
extremely well. We can play better.”
For the night, Shelley Bredewater led the Unicorns with eight kills. Haley Helmly had 11 assists. Lindeman had six digs. Evans and Helmly had five digs each.
Canyon was led by Tiffany Weidner and
Weisman, who had three kills each. Brunette had eight assists, and Porter had three blocks. Jinny Barranco had eight digs.
“I’ve said it before, this is a tough district,” Boehle said. "You can’t find better volleyball in the state.”

Cowboys9 Jones deals with more than a loss
IRVING, Texas (AP) — Two battles, one facing the Dallas Cowboys in the courtroom and another on the field, are keeping owner Jeny Jones and coach Barry Switzer busy in their respective roles.
The coach and his staff Tuesday were trying to determine a way to crack Green Bay’s staunch defensive front without star quarterback Troy Aikman, who suffered a strained right calf in Sunday’s 27-23 loss at Washington.
Jones left later in the day for a meeting with NFL officials at an undisclosed place and time to continue discussions concerning the league’s $300 million lawsuit against the club.
Jones said the league got its fust glimpse at die actual deals he has fashioned between Texas Stadium and sponsors such as Nike, Pepsi-Cola and Dr Pepper after meetings last week.
The team owner has maintained communications with other owners and the NFL throughout the weekend
But Jones said the federal lawsuit has not impeded negi* nations between him and other potential sponsors, such as American Express.
“I think there’s some potential for positive results (from the meeting) as opposed to going full bore into heavy countersuits and heavy litigation,” Jones said as his Nike logo lapel pin glistened in the camera lights.
“I think there’s enough to be gained to make me spend the energy and travel time to have the meeting,” he said.
Jones said the four-hour session involving him and a group of owners last week was “constructive," but nothing positive came of it.
He also said he believes the $35 million contract of cornerback Deion Sanders, who is recovering from ankle surgery, will be approved by the league without any alterations.Sports Day

’ Sean did a good

For the season, Everest has completed 34 of 63 passes for 522 yards and nine touchdowns.

“It was a big play and a perfect read -on his part,” Canyon coach Larry Nowotny said. “It kept Reagan from' -going into halftime with momentum.” The interception gave Torres, a three-year starter at cornerback, three for the ‘ season, tying him for the lead among defensive backs in the region. He also is among the team leaders in tackles with 25 on the season.

Herald-Zeitung photo by ROBERT STEWART Smithson Valley quarterback Sean Everest threw four touchdown passes in the Rangers’ 47-12 win over Del Valle.
With the Smithson Valley running game churning out big yardage early in the season, Sean Everest rarely had occassion to display the Rangers’ air attack.
For three weeks the senior quarterback patiently handed the ball to running back Tim Ivey — the region’s fourth leading rusher with 606 yards — and waited for the right time to pass.
That moment arose last Friday against a Del Valle team that was determined to stop the ground game. The Camdinals stacked the line and dared the Rangers to beat them with the pass.
Everest was up to the challenge.
The 6-2, 170-pound senior, tossed four touchdown passes and led the Rangers to a 47-12 win and a perfect 4-0 record.
The performance garnered him Player of the Week honors from the Herald-Zeitung.
